STANFORD, Calif. — The Georgia women’s golf team wrapped up its four-tournament fall campaign with a 13th place finish in the Stanford Intercollegiate on Sunday. For the second consecutive day, the No. 18-ranked Bulldogs played with only four golfers, meaning they did not enjoy the luxury of a “drop score.”
“There were lots of positives this fall, and we showed what we’re capable of,” head coach Josh Brewer. “We had some of our weaknesses exposed this weekend. We go into the offseason with the chance to clean up some of those things. We aspire to win the national title, and this weekend was a great learning experience. This group has shown they are willing to work hard. This weekend should motivate us to work even harder over the couple of months so we can get closer to reaching our goals.”
Caroline Craig and Isabella Holpfer led Georgia to a 302 result on Sunday. Those Bulldogs posted 3-over 74s, while Jo Hua Hung carded a 76 and Caterina Don shot 78. Jenny Bae was unable to play on Saturday or Sunday.
Overall, Holpfer tied for 26th, Hung tied for 55th, Don tied for 66th and Craig tied for 71st.
No. 1 Stanford swept the team and individual titles on its home course. Rose Zhang earned medalist honors 16-under, leading the Cardinal to a 28-under team score.
The Bulldogs’ win at the Illini Invitational last week highlighted the fall season. Georgia shot 15-under, the second-best tournament score in school history, en route to victory. The Bulldogs also recorded their best single-round team score ever this fall with a 14-under 274 in the second round of the Cougar Classic.
Georgia posted seven par-or-better team tallies in 12 rounds this fall, matching the number of times they did so in 33 rounds all of last season.
Georgia is scheduled to return to action in February at the Columbia Classic at Duran Golf Club in Melbourne, Fla.
